Guided Meditation Video Series: Light 光, Moon月, Sound音, Fire火, Water 水, Wood 木, Gold 金

A friend recommended that I film guided meditations so that is what I have been doing this week! Please note that this is a series that leads from one theme to the next, and even though you can watch the videos individually, watching them as a series will bring about the most affect. Also, I have edited this page to include the newest meditations in the series so that they can be added to the sequence.

On Sunday, 日曜日 I started off this series with a Vortex of Light guided meditation that included tapping and breathwork along with the visualization.

On Monday, 月曜日 I hosted a Dissolving [the ego] into Sound after sending our wishes to the Moon themed meditation.

Tuesday, 火曜日 I hosted a Burning Away the [mortal] Facade, connecting to [immortal] divine source, reforming from the truth of our being
themed one and had fun trying to not burn my fingers lol because when I started filming, I couldn’t find my planned piece of palo santo so I resorted to using the really short one that was kinda already mostly burnt up.

Wednesday was 水曜日 so I decided to record a Water Elemental Guided meditation. I had talked about possibly sticking my phone in a bowl of water since it is in a waterproof case or going to the beach, but I tried out the phone in water idea and realized that my case does leak, and I also worked too late to go to the beach. So I shone a flashlight into my crystal glass candle holder and filmed the prism effect that resembles water.
The River that Flows Underground

On Thursday I looked at all my videos and realized that the sound was too low in most of them so I attached my external microphone to my camcorder and recorded with that instead of camcorder sans microphone, or phone. I live streamed the first two meditations on facebook live, so the quality is as good as a phone can get.

Thursday is 木曜日 so I went outside and filmed a wood/nature themed guided meditation that brings up a childhood game where we pretend to be a “wooden” or dead person. Sometimes, we feel dead, whether in parts, or complete, so I decided to make this video about nourishing ourselves with Earth energy that enters through tree like energetic roots coming from our feet. We bring up the energy and allow it to nourish, heal, reconnect any frayed ends or “dead” parts in order to reanimate them, and regrow as a Whole.

ReAnimate ReGrow & ReConnect to All Parts of the Self

Friday is 金曜日 which is Gold elemental themed. So I thought of how Gold can symbolize Prosperity and Abundance. Hence I put a gold-like band around my Selenite candle holder and guided us through a meditation about accepting the energy Golden Prosperity from the Universe and allowing it to bring forth Abundant Expansion.
There is a difference between Balanced Prosperity and Excess. Balanced Prosperity nurtures our growth with everything we need and more: resources, information, food, shelter, friendships, human & energetic assistance. Excess is when we fall into confusion as our Ego tries to control the flow of abundance and leaves us overwhelmed by the torrent of incoming resources.
In this guided meditation we put on an energetic golden belt full that has many links and many tools for us to use, and if we are in need of anything, the belt magnetizes it to us. Then we allow this golden energy to embrace us in a vortex of golden dust that swirls all around helping us build and grow, as we grow golden branches our energetic fruits spread to others who join us in a link of prosperity so that the Golden Energy may go wherever it is needed. Our growth encourages and assists that of others. At the end we have the option of removing the symbolic belt and just letting the Golden Energy to embrace us and nurture our growth. Then we use our arms to smooth in the golden energy before we awaken.
Golden Prosperity and Abundant Expansion


Resting in the Coffin of a Long Gone Lover

I didn’t used to pay any attention to Mercury Retrograde, but lately i’v noticed that it Does affect me, and Heavily.

Last night, I dreamed of traveling in a subway train to this outdoors woodsy type place to take part of a challenge, which was to live in this area for a week. I walked around absorbing the sights, sounds and feelings of the environment, while also observing the temporary dwellings of other challengers. The little old lady had built a cute little cottage, it was a red cherry wood color with a deep red varnish and had cute mat teal green wooden board type shingles, there were cute decorative shutters with flowers carved in the wood and maybe a pet (i don’t remember too clearly). According to the dream logic, it was the size of a “tiny house”, which was the size of a dumpster. The last guy i had been with was also there, and he had brought a coffin to serve as his tent. This coffin was the size of a car, had the look and feel of plywood from the hardware store, and it’s lid lifted up and stayed in place like the lid over the body of a grand piano. In the dream i thought about how it was a good structure to stand against the rain and asked him if he’d gotten that from the nearby town, to which he replied yes, and that town was 8 hrs away from here. I continued walking around observing the ground, seeing the damp leaves and feeling the moist over cast weather. Very blue gray with damp red fallen leaves on the ground. As night fell, I needed a place to stay since I had not made or brought my own dwelling, so I texted The guy and he replied with a message telling me to not bother him because he was spending the night in town. It was implied in the dream that i had permission to stay in his coffin, which i did for the rest of the challenge week, and The guy was never there as he was spending every night in town. I thought of how it would be nice for him to hold me as i rested but i also thought of how he most likely had a new girlfriend by now, even though i’d never asked him (both in real life and in the dream).
During the week the rain started Pouring and everyone in this area decided to gather in the subway station to celebrate. We all danced in a damp subway station with water logged cement floors, with some dancers flying up into the air.
At the end of the challenge, i was declared the winner of the challenge because i’d spent the entire week camping out in The guy’s coffin while other people either weren’t there (like The guy) or had their structure washed away by the rain (The little old lady).

Staying in the coffin of a long gone lover, wishing to be held again. Within this hiding place i rest my flame and take a break from the burning. I tend to myself so that the torrent of rain will not wash me away like everyone else.

Fresh rain is clearing, cleansing and to be celebrated! We let the water wash us, yet are careful to not be swept up and away by the current.

I rest as i shed my skin and grow

(photo of coffin here that i got online because pictures look nice in blog posts and i didn’t want to draw a coffin last minute. if anyone has better ideas on where and how to get random stock images like this, let me know 🙂 i am going to get better at looking for stock images as i write more)

During this Mercury Retrograde, i started with going back to a hobby i had quit, then started a side income idea i had given up on, and now i dream of the last guy.

As i type this i realize that my dreams are in sequence with each other, first i fight with myself and my shadow, then Anubis brings me to the shadow realm, and last night i rested in the coffin of a long gone lover.
